Sivan Scheffner is 30 years old Artist- Ceramicist located in Tel Aviv . She graduated from the Ceramics & Glass Department at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem (B.F.A).
In recent years she have found that her works is mostly influenced by self- reflection, mostly by the importance of the process that occurs in the studio, as opposed to the final product that is eventually displayed outside of it, the point where an object becomes an independent work of art, and the special bond between the artist and his material.
